C is for Color


So I've decided to do a quick post on hair color and how to figure out the perfect/correct shade for yourself.  Most women decide on a shade just because it looks beautiful in front of them.  When really there are actually a few factors that need to be considered.  The main one being skin tone.  
Do you know what your skin tone is?  It's okay if you don't, by the end of the post you'll have it all figured out!  


Skin Tone

So when it comes to skin tone there are only 2 categories that you can fall under, warm or cool.  
And to figure out which one you are there's a very simple test...

Take a peek at the veins in your arms in natural light.
- if the color looks green then you are warm
- if the color looks blue then you are cool

So simple right!? 


Here are some fun ideas if you're warm.

And if you think you're cool then definitely check out these.

Downtown Activities








Downtown shopping is always such an adventure.  You never know what kind of goodies you're going to find!  Since I'm moving on Sunday and my mom is in town visiting I figured we should go check out our favorite shops.  And I just realized that apparently I had a thing for scrabble pieces haha because the first 3 pictures are all about it.  I also love love the octopus necklace, classy yet so different.  And who doesn't want a tiny macaroon trinket box in their life!?  And of course this awesome French Bulldog rocking out with headphones is just the coolest.  My mom ended up getting a beagle one.  So cute!

Obsessions



Love love love the colors on Mermaid Child.  I check this site out daily.  It's a must for all summer time lovers.

With this crazy heat wave going on, making boozy popsicles are a main priority.  So many different options!

Snap pictures all day every day like myself?  Why not take those memories and throw them up on your fridge!?  When I first found Sticky Gram I almost cried tears of joy.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to buy another fridge soon just to hold all the magnets.

Layering of bracelets are the "thing" of the summer so obviously I'm following in foot.  So why not spice up your wrists with some pretty fly bracelets from Frieda and Nellie.  You will not find this jazz anywhere else.

We all know that I rock glasses 24/7 and I've been shopping around like crazy for some new specs.  Warby Parker and Bon Look are the 2 sites it's come down too.  Amazing designs and great prices.

Enjoy!

BIG News in July

I'm moving back to CT!  I cannot wait to become an official northerner again.  There wasn't a specific reason for the change except I missed home.  The beach is amazing but something was always missing.    This idea has been floating around in my head for a while so a job opportunity finally came about and I scooped it up!  So now it's time to pack and get ready for the new adventures that are to come.
